From the IndieWeb chat: Tantek Çelik suggests “Blocktober”. Block the big social networks in October. Maybe you can’t quit Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube forever, but you can do it for a month.

@manton That’s not a bad idea.

@manton Just remember, it is ok if your ex-girlfriend is in a new relationship. You don't need to look.

@manton re Blocktober -- yes, I happily quite FB and (mostly) Instagram for August. It worked so well that I'm staying off them for September and will add October for Blocktober. But the trick was to take it month by month.

@agilelisa Good point about month by month. I gave up Facebook and Instagram a long time ago, so I'm going to try to stop using YouTube in October. That is going to be a little tricky for me.
